Some people complain, “I just can’t understand why my spiritual life is so weak and unsatisfying.” Today’s devotional points to the most common cause and its remedy. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
II Timothy 2:15 (ESV)
“Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly.”/toggle_item]
Some are perfectly satisfied with laying again the first principles, always going over those; but they want to know no more. I beseech you, strive to be educated in the things of God. Read not only the first spelling-book, ‘Believe and live,’ but go on to read in the high classics of holiness and communion. Seek to be well established in the faith, and ‘to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge.’ Be a diligent student of the Word; give thyself wholly to it. Lie asoak in divine truth till it colors thee through and through.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XXXIX, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1893), p. 171-172]
